Massive Electronics Manufacturing Program, reports The Economic Times. A few days ago, Samsung said it would produce its latest Galaxy S24 series in India and export it to meet overseas demand.

Business Standard reported that Apple plans to increase iPhone production, which is expected to reach $12 billion in free-on-board (FOB) output by fiscal 2024. According to the report, Apple suppliers produced $9.4 billion worth of iPhones in India in the first nine fiscal years of this year for the month of fiscal 2024.

Seeing the huge market potential, the Indian government initiated a phased manufacturing program, with Samsung and Chinese smartphone makers expanding their handset production capacity in India after imposing tariffs on imported handsets and components after 2016.

However, DIGITIMES Research observed that since the outbreak, Samsung is expanding production in India as part of its diversification strategy.
